Wow.Well, here is a special one from my collection. This is Arrow, a guitar that has been with me since January 2019. This guitar is the 2nd prototype that I had made for Brian May Guitars to see if we would like this particular colour, neck profile and scale length.
It was professionally & hand made by master luthier, Brian Nutter of Nutter Guitars. He took Two-Tone and made all of the templates based off of my guitar, short of the neck dimensions & scale length. Also unlike Two-Tone (but a pro for you), this guitar has swimming pool routing (meaning underneath the pickups is a bigger hole so you can change out pickups as you please. Its neck is very similar to a 60's Gibson. Chunky C-shaped neck with a standard ledge on the neck for the thumb.
It features BURNS TRISONIC PICKUPS, and of course, my design which only I have access to. 24' scale length. (Just like Brian May, except this one has the reverse headstock!) Steinburger Tuners
All you would need is to make a new pickguard for the middle) So you have probably seen this guitar in black & white, with a humbucker and without. The reason for this is 1, because of the tone sings and sounds very similar to Two-Tone, and 2, it is the only guitar I have (short of the 1 other BMG prototype) that allows me to do this. Definitely a plus if you want to put your own pickups in!
It has been featured on Anderton's Podcast as well as Premiere Guitars RIG RUNDOWN as shown in the photos and some of the videos I've added to the gallery. It also was on stage with me at Eric Clapton's Crossroads in 2019. Eric Johnson indicated it was his favourite of all my guitars.
Here are some videos of it in action -
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KGG_BjxJ8yA This guitar is my 3rd handmade prototype by a professional luthier, and accordingly, you would get a certificate of ownership, what the guitar is, and that it was indeed mine for future use if you intend on selling it. (I would hope I get first right of refusal?) But not necessary ;)
In time, these guitars will go up in value as we do intend in the future to have a tobacco burst and these are my very own prototypes which hold and carry value as my career continues.
Why Am I Selling It?
I am realising I am only playing Two-Tone for the most part, and don't like gear to sit around. I think this will always be the case for me, so a limited amount of guitars is almost essential for my conscience. It is being played, I am touring less, and I think it's ready to go to a new home to someone who would love it. This is only one of Two of my personal guitars I Have sold (the other one was Silver..my very first Schecter prototype).
It is in used condition since it has been on the road with me. Basic scratches and dents from being on the road for about 3 years. But all just signs of being loved, of course.
There is a little nick below the pickguard on the front, but I am going to see what I can do to cover that up. Not a big deal.
Comes in a high soft case, as it's unfortunately all I have for it. ( I find custom cases on the road heavy!)
Grab it while you can, as this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to own my very own guitar, Arrow.
